Finalists for the Legal Aid Practitioners Group 2020 awards have been announced. Sheree Green of Greenchurch Legal Services has been nominated under the Mental Capacity category.
Chris Minnoch, CEO of LAPG, which organises the LALY awards on a not-for-profit basis to celebrate the work of social justice lawyers, says:
‘The finalists selected by the LALY judges this year truly reflect the broad range of lawyers and organisations who all have a vital role to play in ensuring people in our communities have access to high-calibre legal advice. We are recognising the lawyers who are working to protect the rights of prisoners charged with the most serious offences; of children at risk of FGM; of families living in unsafe, unsuitable homes; and much more. We introduced a Regional Legal Aid Firm/Not-for-Profit award this year, and are delighted that finalists in our 11 awards categories are based everywhere from rural Wales, to Northern Ireland, to Liverpool, to Stoke on Trent, to London – and many places in between.’
